Garda alert issued over reports of 'groping' on Luas Green Line

A man has died after being hit by a Luas tram in Dublin.

The collision occurred shortly before midnight last night, Gardaí have confirmed.

The unidentified pedestrian was struck by the tram at around 11.55 close to the Kingswood stop on the Luas red line in south-west Dublin, reports the Irish Times.

Luas services were temporarily stopped between the Red Cow and Tallaght/Saggart stops after the accident.

Trams are now back running as normal in the area.

The man’s body has been taken to the city morgue.

In a statement, Gardaí said that they are investigating.

“Gardaí attended the scene of a collision between a pedestrian and the Luas at the Kingswood red line Luas stop at approximately 11.55p.m. on Monday. March 11.

“An unidentified man was struck on the Luas line and his body has been removed to the city morgue.

“Investigations ongoing.”

It comes less than a month after a similar death on the city’s Luas lines.

Tallaght woman Patricia Quinn, a mother of five in her early 70s, was killed when she was hit by a Luas tram while crossing between Cookstown and Tallaght Hospital in February.
